Spring: a poem by three Residents

Spring: a poem by three Residents

Written in January by Birtley Residents, Mary Mirecki, Iris Newton and Pat Scrase, the following poem captures the very essence of spring in the countryside.

SPRING

A peaceful new day, with vibrant blue sky

I listen intently to birds chirp and cry

 

Many buds now bloom into life

Finally giving up the winter strife

 

The air is fresh, with a gentle breeze

Aeroplanes leave white trails with great ease

 

The trees branch out, with new leaves shiny green

And sweet smelling blossom, the best I’ve seen

 

The lambs hop and skip in fields of green grass

Whilst the odd clouds above arrive and then pass

 

We are now so thankful that spring is here

And we embrace this season with jolly good cheer!
